How to watch Cronulla Sharks vs Canberra Raiders live and NRL match preview

Posted: 21 March 2021 11:05 am

Can the Sharks pull off victory over the Raiders to help skipper Wade Graham celebrate his 250th NRL game in style?

SUMMARY: Cronulla vs Canberra is exclusive to Fox Sports, meaning you can only watch on Foxtel or Kayo Sports. Of the pair your best option is to watch on Kayo as it has a free trial. Watch for free using this 14-day trial.

The Sharks will be missing centre Jesse Ramien against the Raiders after he copped a three week suspension for a high tackle on Dragon Matt Dufty. Coach John Morris has called up Mawene Hiroti as his replacement.

The Raiders are unchanged from the side which proved too strong for Wests Tigers last week. Coach Ricky Stuart has decided not to bring back co-captain Jarrod Croker, who needs conditioning after his off-season shoulder surgery.

Sharks vs Raiders kick-off time

The final match of the 2nd round kicks off at 6:15pm AEDT on Sunday 21 March at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium in Kogarah.

How to watch Cronulla Sharks vs Canberra Raiders

The only way to watch the Sharks vs Raiders is on Fox League. That leaves your options as Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports. Both supporters of these two clubs would be smart to sign up to one as neither side features much on free-to-air.

Cronulla fans will have to wait until round 11 for a Channel 9 fixture. After the Raiders opened their campaign during Channel 9's Sunday afternoon time slot they'll now appear just 2 more times over the next 15 weeks. You can see our guide to each team's matches on Channel 9 here.

Sharks vs Raiders prediction

The Raiders have won their past four games against the Sharks. Add that stat in with how they looked in last weeks performance and it's hard to go past them this week.

Canberra should monster Cronulla in the forwards, giving halves George Williams and Jack Wighton time and space to weave their magic. The only saving grace for the Sharks is that they'll be better prepared for wet weather footy after last weeks rain soaked game against the Dragons. We'll lean for Raiders by 12 points
